Update 8/15/14 4:45 p.m. (PST): Rescue pending!
Time is quickly running out for a puppy, described as "amazing" by a shelter volunteer, who is impounded at the Chicago Animal Care and Control facility in Ill.
On Wednesday evening, the following email was sent to the National Dog News Examiner about the puppy:
I think he is deaf. He was amazing out of cage. Shepherd like fur. Sooooo soft. Kinda knew "sit" when I used hand signals. He is a great dog. Very gentle.
Two days ago, an article was written on behalf of this puppy, whose name is unknown. Despite hundreds of "shares" on his article, he remains unclaimed and in danger. At the time of the original story's publication, a shelter volunteer had advised that the pup is considered to be "very urgent - beyond urgent!"
The puppy's intake notes indicate that he was a stray who was picked up on W. Madison in Chicago, Ill., and the animal control officer noted the word "nice." The pup, known only by his identification number A114600, needs to be secured by an approved Homeward Bound rescue partner; judging by the emailed received from the shelter volunteer, he needs to be secured soon.
This puppy is "rescue only" read more about the facility's designation for rescue only at this link. Rescue agencies struggle to find room for all of the dogs who need to be saved from animal control facilities - read more about how you can help in this article about fostering.
